1 comment

Hello again everyone,

We're happy to announce that the incredibly and unnecessarily arduous process of getting the rewards items produced has finally come to an end. Our shipping materials have also begun to arrive, so we're ready to begin sending them out to you at last. We'll start by sending out the packages that fit into the containers we have and continue to ship others as the appropriate containers arrive. Thank you all so much again for your patience.

    - EXCLUSIVE REWARD (updated Oct. 30) -- One of Robert Berry's 69 original character sketches of random Dubliners (based on availability). Rob has been making character sketches for crowd scenes, and while we don't want to alter our existing rewards structure, we feel strongly enough about these new sketches that we want to add them. So, we're making them exclusive to $35 contributors. You can find galleries of these sketches on's blog and on the ULYSSES "SEEN" Facebook page. Look for new images to be added to these galleries every day or two as Rob produces more of them. The first contributor will get the first opportunity to choose a sketch, and so on.
